Myth: Sobek Shedety, He Who Rises Like Ra

I’ve been contemplating Shedety myths, and this idea of Sobek rising out of the lake like Ra, of being renewed in the waters before rising at dawn. I find it to be very beautiful imagery, and I’ve been thinking about it mostly because I started writing this other story, set in an alternate universe, where […]

Solstice Blessings!

I’m way behind on my Solstice preparations. But then I’m way behind on a lot of things, ngl. Christmas does that to me, I think, when I have to buy presents for several people, and catch up with all the shit I didn’t get around to doing because I was working full time. But anyway. […]

Coronation of Heru-sa-Aset

So this is the first day of this shiny festival, which is an extension, if you like, of the last day of the Mysteries of Wesir. I wanted a symmetry for my Wheel, and this seemed like the best way to mirror/echo the Mysteries, by having a six-day coronation festival for Heru, particularly at this […]

I just need to breathe

Life, hey? I’ve been seriously busy these past few weeks and it’s thrown out many of my plans for posting here. Kept drafting them and then deleting them, or being too tired to think about what to write at all. I don’t mind, of course, because surprise visits by my brother and his family are […]

Cosmology and Practice

Apologies for the radio silence of late. I’ve been working, and I’ve been sick, and I haven’t had enough mental energy to think of anything substantial to update about. I do have some things I do need to post about, but they’re not quite ready yet. In the meantime, this is a post about cosmology […]

Myth: Something I’m Not (Wesir as a trans* god)

A/N: So I’ve spent the evening writing this, because apparently Wesir didn’t want to wait or anything once I’d figured out how to translate the experience of being transgendered as a human into something that would work for a god (He suggested daft humans who don’t want to listen to their god :D). Five thousand […]

Site updates

I’m beginning to work my way through the things on this site that need updating. Some things aren’t really relevant to my practice anymore, like the 42 Days of Paganism pages, and some things just need updating and rewriting. Sobek’s history is one I definitely need to do, but I have a collection of articles […]

Artemis and Other Things

General caveat: This post is pretty much meditational logs and UPG and other assorted ~woo~ things. If you’re not interested, just skip back to the pretty shrine pictures. <3 Specific caveat: There is discussion here about meditational things I experienced while doing the Pillars of the Naos devotions last month (March 2014), as part of […]

[Myth] To Bring Forth A King + Rituals

Short post is short and quick because it’s nearly dinner time, but I’ve updated my Myths and Stories page, and added a new myth I wrote this afternoon, To Bring Forth A King. It concerns the conception/creation of Heru-sa-Aset, told by Sobek, and comes with the usual UPG caveats. Go forth and read, if you […]

[Myth] Sobek Writes Of The Birth Of Heru

This is what Sobek’s been chattering to me about all afternoon. I finally got around to writing it. Not quite what I originally had in mind, but it’s still pretty damn good, I think. — Sobek sits in the shade of a large willow tree, the waters of the Nile lapping gently against the banks. […]
